Vintage 1950s Danish Green Damask Two Seater Sofa with Fringe
Staying true to our ethos of acquiring pieces we would love in our own home, we fell for this sweet, frou frou, curvaceous sofa, even though it’s rather different to our usual seats. It’s Danish in origin and heralds from the 1950s, most likely the early part of the decade. Considering its years, it’s in super condition with very few signs of wear and tear to the original green, floral, damask upholstery. We love the OTT swirls, scallops, curves and flourishes, accentuated by braid piping and of course the long fringed trim around the bottom is the icing on the cake! With neat ‘love seat’ / two seater proportions and elegant, feminine details, it would be perfect to cheer up a dull bedroom, study or hallway with its faded glamour. And it’s comfortable too with a firm, sprung seat and a tall, contoured back.
This original, vintage sofa is ‘sold as seen’. It’s in very good – excellent, used condition. The piece has been thoroughly vacuumed and checked but otherwise left well alone as it’s in such great shape. The original green damask upholstery, featuring a swirling, floral motif, is in very good order, hugging the contours of the frame tightly and with no areas of concern. There are some very light areas of fading from use but this is in line with what we would expect with used, vintage piece of this age. We would say the wear is light and minimal. You will see in our photos that the back panel is a different generic fabric – this isn’t a repair. It’s a common sight with sofas from this era. Quite simply, they were designed to be set again a wall and the furniture makers didn’t want to waste expensive fabric on the unseen back! The sofa’s front legs have small brass castors in good, working order. The frame itself is solid and stable (note: despite being small, this is a heavy sofa) with no wobbles or joint concerns. It’s a very well-made piece. Sadly there is no maker’s mark but we’ve imported this sofa directly from Denmark. Please our photos for an accurate picture of the super condition of this fine, little sofa.
